General While there is an abundance of literature dealing with the American antitrust laws, one can also observe that the application of this area of the law to foreign commerce is still in an evolutionary stage of development. To some extent this can be quantiflably explained by pointing out that the rapid rise of the interests of the American business community in foreign commerce is only a fairly recent 1 phenomenon. This participatory interest reveals a wide spectrum of commercial activities. While the traditional concept of foreign commerce was often limited to thinking in terms of exports and imports, present commercial activities include also such marketing methods as the establishment of foreign branches or subsidiaries, or 2 the location of manufacturing, processing, or assembly plants abroad. To this array of arrangements, most of which contemplate a widening of the market potential, we may add the current merger movement, the conglomerate charac ter of which has been termed its 'most unique characteristic,. 3 Little wonder that at least one author refers to the application of the 311titrust laws to foreign commerce as being still somewhat of a 'frontier area of the law'. 4 Because of the rapidly expanding participation of the American business community in interna tional commerce a gradual evolution of the international dimensions of the American antitrust laws seems therefore within the realm of justifIed expecta tions.

Faulkner and the Craft of Fiction

In 1944, William Faulkner wrote to Malcolm Cowley, "I'm telling the same story over and over which is myself and the world. That's all a writer ever does, he tells his own biography in a thousand different terms." With these words, Faulkner suggests that what changes in the course of his prolific novel-writing career is not so much the content but the style, "the thousand different terms" of his fiction. The essays in Faulkner and the Craft of Fiction, first presented at the 1987 Faulkner and Yoknapatawpha Conference at the University of Mississippi, focus on Faulkner's narrative inventiveness, on how Faulkner, like his character Benjy in The Sound and the Fury, relentlessly kept "trying to say." The contributors, authorities on Faulkner's narrative, offer a wide variety of critical approaches to Faulkner's fiction-writing process. Cleanth Brooks, for example, applies the strategies of New Criticism to Faulkner's rendering of the heroic and pastoral modes; Judith L. Sensibar attempts to locate biographical sources for repeated Faulknerian paradigms; and Philip M. Weinstein draws on the theories of the Marxist Althusser and the French psychoanalyst Lacan. The topics examined are similarly wide-ranging.

The Art and Craft of Natural Dyeing

Traditional Recipes for Modern Use

"This is the most comprehensive manual written on natural dyes since the early 1800s. Jim Liles has rescued ancient skills from near-extinction and shared them in a book that will inspire, challenge, and guide the modern dyer."--Rita Buchanan, author of A Weaver's Garden, and editor of the new Brooklyn Botanic Gardens Handbook on Natural Dyes " . . . a must for every dyer. The recipes are explicit and detailed as to success and failure."--Mary Frances Davidson For several thousand years, all dyes were of animal, vegetable, or mineral origin, and many ancient civilizations possessed excellent dye technologies. The first synthetic dye was produced in 1856, and the use of traditional dyes declined rapidly thereafter. By 1915 few non-synthetics were used by industry or craftspeople. The craft revivals of the 1920s explored traditional methods of natural dyeing to some extent, particularly with wool, although the great eighteenth- and nineteenth-century dye manuals, which recorded the older processes, remained largely forgotten. In The Art and Craft of Natural Dyeing, J. N. Liles consolidates the lore of the older dyers with his own first-hand experience to produce both a history of natural dyes and a practical manual for using pre-synthetic era processes on all the natural fibers--cotton, linen, silk, and wool. A general section on dyeing and mordanting and a glossary introduce the beginner to dye technology. In subsequent chapters, Liles summarizes the traditional dye methods available for each major color group. Scores of recipes provide detailed instructions on how to collect ingredients--flowers, weeds, insects, wood, minerals--prepare the dyevat, troubleshoot, and achieve specific shades. The book will appeal not only to beginning and veteran dyers but to students of restorations and reconstruction as well as to craftspeople--spinners, quilters, weavers, knitters, and other textile artists--interested in natural dyes for their beauty and historical authenticity. The Author: J. N. Liles is professor of zoology at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. He has taught at Arrowmont School and other regional craft schools and has exhibited his work at the Arrowmont School, the Southern Highland Handicraft Guild Folk Art Center, and the Carol Reece Museum.

The Polish School of Philosophy of Medicine

My 'discovery' of the Polish School of philosophy of medicine stemmed from my studies in the genesis of Ludwik Fleck's epistemology. These studies, and my interest in the scientific roots of Fleck's epistemology were a nearly 'natural' result of my own biography: like Fleck I had been trained, an had worked as an immunologist, and had later switched to studies in the social history of medicine and biology. Moreover, it so happened that Fleck's book, Genesis and Development of a Scientific Fact -the description of a science as it is, not as it should be -was the first epistemological study in which I found echos of my experience in the laboratory. My interest in Fleck was also highlightened by the fact that in his works, and, as I discovered later, in the works of his predecessors of the Polish School of philosophy of medicine, was formulated the problem that had stimulated my interest in the history of medicine and biology, and is still central to my present investigations: the relationships between biological knowledge and clinical practice. The writing of the book was made possible through to the help of many colleagues and friends. The unfailing support for my research, whatever its subject might be, from my colleagues from Unit 158 of INSERM and in particular from its head Patrice Pinell, has made my study of the Polish School possible.

Finally—a resource that describes the “how,” “when,” and “with whom” of remotivation therapy! In recent years, remotivation therapy has become an integral part of a patient care plan in a wide variety of settings. What started out as group therapy sessions in a psychiatric setting has expanded into a therapeutic modality effective in geriatric long-term and day care settings, social clubs, group homes for people who were formerly institutionalized, substance abuse centers, prisons, and most recently, in facilities that provide programs for patients with Alzheimer’s or Huntington’s disease. This book examines remotivation therapy in diverse settings that include volunteer and independent living programs, an area health education center, and a state mental hospital. You’ll also find the results of studies conducted in more than a dozen settings with widely varied client populations. The Handbook of Remotivation Therapy will familiarize you with: the role of the therapist in both basic and advanced remotivation therapy-step-by-step instructions on what (and what not) to do questions and concepts to use in remotivation sessions, dealing with choices, realistic scenarios, reminiscing, and stimulation funding options for remotivation therapy programs the positive public relations impact for institutions that utilize remotivation therapy programs designing and assembling a collaborative team to provide remotivation therapy the fifty-year history of remotivation therapy—from its birth as the brainchild of Dorothy Hoskins Smith, to its initial clinical use at Philadelphia State Hospital, to the pioneering work of Walter F. Pullinger, Jr., and the roles of the Smith, Kline, and French Foundation and the National Remotivation Therapy Organization (NRTO) In the Handbook of Remotivation Therapy, you’ll find chapters that thoughtfully explore the specifics of this type of group work: in rehabilitative settings, correctional institutions, nursing care facilities, mental health hospitals, and in long-term care settings in substance abuse prevention, treatment, and relapse prevention in conjunction with recreation therapy with deinstitutionalized clients with persons who have Huntington’s disease with persons who have Alzheimer’s disease Remotivation therapy deals with the strengths, rather than weaknesses, of the client, and can be performed by any trained health professional, social worker, relative, or technician. It saves time and money for mental health professionals with heavy caseloads by preparing noncommunicative clients for more advanced types of therapy. The Handbook of Remotivation Therapy can help you add this results-based and extraordinarily cost-effective group treatment modality to your therapeutic arsenal.
